'I want to be like him': £10.9m powerhouse a massive fan of Liverpool star Southampton defender Mohammed Salisu has praised Liverpool counterpart Virgil van Dijk, deeming the Reds ace “one of the very best” centre-backs in the world.

Ahead of Liverpool hosting Southampton this weekend, Salisu admits he’s a huge fan of Van Dijk, hoping he can become as good as him over the course of his career.

Van Dijk shone at Southampton after joining them for £13million from Celtic, before his subsequent £75million switch to Liverpool.

“I think Virgil is a very good central defender and, I would say, is one of the very best central defenders in the world,” the Daily Echo quotes the Ghanaian as saying.

This term, however, he’s back to fitness and performing superbly, with 15 Reds appearances under his belt in 2021-22.

The 22-year-old joined the Saints for £10.9million in August 2020 and, after making just 15 appearances last term, is already on 14 this season.

The Dutchman spent most of last season on the sidelines due to a long-term injury and Liverpool missed him terribly.
